Just a friendly reminder to CJ Israel wouldn't have taken any territory if the Arabs had just been willing to accept Israel's existence. 7 Arab countries attacked Israel when it was formed. This was before Israel had taken any land. In 1948 Israel didn't own the Gaza strip (that belonged to Egypt), the West Bank belonged to Jordan (though it hadn't been recognised since long before the fall of the Ottoman empire) Jordan also occupied Jerusalem ILLEGALLY (who protested then?), Sinai was part of Egypt and the Golan was in Syrian hands. In 1948 the land that Israel had was given to her LEGALLY by the UN. Areas like Tel-Aviv had been bought with funds from the JNF. The Arabs were also given land, they could've had their own state, they DIDN'T WANT IT! They all voted NO. Just a friendly reminder.
